Fall 2019 Notes & Inspiration
Notes & Inspiration
For Fall 2019, Ulla Johnson offers a wildly colorful and opulent celebration of pattern and form, telling a story of emboldened and poetic femininity. Myriad influences are brought into harmonious dialogue. Tribal motifs and color juxtapositions are seen in vividly graphic intarsia and layered stripes and patterns. Hand loomed fabrics developed with Indian weavers are lavishly embroidered with cascading sequins and trimmed in a delicate hand crochet that evokes Johnson’s Eastern European heritage. Diaphanous silks and crisp poplins are printed with hand drawn batiks featuring climbing florals and tropical birds, seen in eye popping colors contrasted with earth tones of slate blue, umber, cork, alabaster, and kohl.
